HOW TO BE HAPPY KEY #2
Allow Yourself to Let Go :
Allowing yourself to let go by not holding a grudge should free up your mind and time. In a sense, not remaining angry or disappointed will make you a more productive person. Rather than seeing “letting go” of something as a loss, learn to view it as a positive. Doing this will help in your decision to become a better person just by altering your actions and habits.
Everyone is familiar with the expression “Forgive and Forget.” Well, why don’t you? So much time and energy goes into being aggravated, especially when this involves someone you must communicate with. In such an instance, your inability to talk to, or otherwise effectively communicate with, another coworker decreases efficiency. Not being able to forgive creates other problems, as what started off as a simple argument transforms into you not performing as well at your workplace. This makes a small problem get much larger, all because a situation was handled the same, ineffective way.
Similar to anger and negativity in general, not allowing yourself to let go of simple things and disputes, starts a destructive chain of events. This, clearly, is not good for any of us.
It’s been said that the one who cannot forget an incident has a mindset far worse than the one who was initially wrong, or at fault, in any given situation. Remember, resentment is a negative, unproductive, and, often, harmful emotion. Learn to cultivate good habits and do not forget to put forgiveness towards the top of the list.
